Forza Motorsport 5 announcement trailer

21 May

Forza Motorsport 5 Xbox One

You may have heard something about the new Xbox One presented today by Microsoft. We’re quite sure you have. Anyway, at Microsoft Studios they thought that for keep up with the latest announcement of Gran Turismo 6 (that is set to be released on PlayStation 3), they needed to show off a bit. So Forza Motorsport 5 was the reply, and it looks astonishing!

Enjoy the very first announcement trailer, revealed during today’s event.

Well, not yet satisfied? Let’s carry on with some really beautiful screenshots!

Now, we’re not sure (and nobody said anything about it) if those pics are in-game footage or just pre-rendered screens, but if Forza Motorsport 5 will look like this, oh well, farewell GT6…

Anyway, it will be one of the first things we’ll find out about the new Xbox One, as Forza Motorsport 5 will be available at launch.

Meet Xbox One

21 May

Yep, this is it! The brand new Microsoft game console, the XBOX ONE (nice name, no really). And below you can admire its brand new shaped controller.

Here some more details:

• 8 gigs of RAM

• USB 3.0

• Wi-Fi Direct

Blu-Ray disc drive (wondering how much is Sony’s bill for this)

• 64-bit architecture

Wired (that tried the new Xbox) reported that Xbox One will NOT require an always-online internet connection, but due to an installation of every game on the HDD and a registration on the Xbox site required, Microsoft confirmed with that while installations to other hard drives are allowed, users will need to pay an unspecified fee to do so. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?? So I need to pay even if I borrow a game from my friend. Thanks.

The Xbox One won’t play any existing Xbox 360 games, said Microsoft’s Marc Whitten in an interview with The Verge.

“The system is based on a different core architecture, so back-compat doesn’t really work from that perspective.”

Microsoft’s Harvey Eagle told IGN another super good news (see: irony). In fact seems like your Kinect will need to be connected in order for the Xbox One to function:

“Kinect does require to be connected to Xbox One in all cases, yes.”

Xbox One will hit the stores this fall, but still no release date.
